Refugee Health - Live Webinar
New Zealand is one of many countries who offers a home to refugees. Through the Refugee Quota Programme, New Zealand resettles 1000 refugees every year.
As pharmacists, it is important to understand the different backgrounds and health needs of refugees as most are at risk of significant health issues. Specific focus on refugee health is required to ensure this vulnerable population receives optimal care and support.
Join our upcoming webinar on Refugee Health presented by Bafreen Sherif to learn about the global refugee crisis, how refugees arrive in New Zealand, the existing mechanisms in place enabling resettlement and the potential healthcare needs and barriers to access of refugees. Also learn about different strategies to effectively communicate with people of refugee backgrounds to optimise medication and health-related outcomes.
